Hello, friends! Today is an exciting day on my blog! The design team from Joy Clair Stamps has teamed up with the design team from My Sweet Petunia! We are doing a cross promotion to show how awesome the MISTI tool is with Joy Clair clear stamps! If you are hopping along, you should be arriving from the amazing, Giovana's blog! If you just happened upon my blog and would like to start from the beginning, you can find the list of blog stops at the bottom of my post.
Today, I am working with one of Joy Clair's newest stamp sets, ____________ and the Mini MISTI!
One thing I like about the MISTI tool, is that it makes it easy to work on the layout of the card. You can visualize how the stamps will look and make any changes that are needed to be made. Below, you can see that I worked with the placement of the stamps.
Now it is time to stamp the images from the Doodle Flowers stamp set. I am planning on using different colors, so I stamp one image at a time. For now, I am only stamping the images, I plan to come back later and color in the images with the same inks.
If you have been stopping by the Joy Clair blog this month, you see that the design team is working with the 'Masking' technique. I decided to include it on this card as well. I wanted the jar to look like it is sitting on a tabletop. To achieve this, I stamped the jar image onto an extra piece of cardstock and cut the image out. The cutout is placed onto the stamped image and washi tape is place across the card. The Wood Background stamp is inked with brown ink and pressed on the card. Once you remove the tape, you can see that the wood grain image is not stamped on top of the jar.
Another thing I like about the MISTI, is that when an image does not stamp completely, you can re-ink the stamp and stamp in the exact same place, for a solid image. Below, you can see that the images from the Hello Sentiment set did not stamp correctly, so I repeated the stamping process.
To finish the card, I placed the card panel on top of a fun print and placed it onto a A2 card base.
Let's talk about prizes!!! My Sweet Petunia is giving away one MISTI and Joy Clair is giving away $25 Joy Clair gift card to two (2) lucky winners!
